Slow but steady wins the.....
Thanks for the pm's asking how I'm getting on.
Managed to get a few things done.
Have bought myself a mini sand blaster which I'm using with fine to mediam glass media. It works amazingly. I'm chuffed with it. I do have a 300litre compressor though which has helped.
I managed to re new the bottom of the door and the inner rail where there door glass felt fillet goes on to. Just need to re skim it now with the ally door skins .
I'm going plastic windows aswell. It amazing how much lighter it is without all the gubbins and what nots . I had ally does on my z car years ago and I loved them so I'm going that route again.
I have put a gazebo around the pick up currently as I'm creating a right mess . And it's working well so I'll put up with it for a little longer .
I've decided that I'm gonna cut the whole rear of the pickup off as it seen better days so rather than fixing here and there it looks like it's gonna get a birthday of panels again...
Booked the over time at work to pay for it already.
I have aligned and screwed and tacked panels not going to crazy with the welder yet as there is ALOT of fettling to do yet so clamps and screws is the best way until I'm sure .
Both door steps now on and welded in and looking mint .
I could not believe some tit welded over sills on a pick up. The drains did there job from the load bay but they were just filling the sills to the brim with everything I even found a a 5p coin!!!. It was chocker.
High lighted in red on pic.
Next job is getting the centre tunnel in and welding it all in . Just awaiting my new neck hood for welding as I can't find my old one... grrr. Not welded in pic just put in place to measure up but looks fab so nice with new whole metal and no patches.
Then it will be the rear subframe front mounting panel.
So yeah getting there..
